Sunset Hike to Stack Rock

Hiking stack rock
A fallen log made a great photo op for our girls!

On Friday, May 16, we got the girls out – fifteen of them to be exact!  Our mission was simple: hike out to Stack Rock in the Boise Foothills, watch the sunset, and cruise back with headlamps – all while making new friends, and hanging out with familiar faces.

At 6.4 miles round-trip, it’s not the steepness that gets you (although there are two hauls on the trip; the final pull to Stack Rock, and the final pull out of the canyon to your car) but rather the endurance.  It’s a butt burner… swimsuit season anyone?

However, there were no complaints, simply a really fun group of girls, a couple of four legged companions, and some husband/boyfriends serving as volunteer photo dudes – thanks guys!

Here are some of our photos from the evening!
